in Lamont, Mo. in 1933. I'm not sure of which base he
was on for training. But he has mentioned remembering
the 25th parallel at Moon Shawnee during his time
served. Anyone who has any info, would be a great
help. Here is a copy of his obituary if it might help
someone- Henry Earl Mullins (78) longtime

Crown Z Mill . Later they moved to McMinville, OR

Comments:
I worked for him (Anthony Labrozzi) when I was a 2Lt at Ft Jackson, South Carolina in 1975-1978. He was a Colonel at the time. He retired in Columbia and started to work for a small arms range contractor. I did see him in 1980 when I was a Captain in Special Forces visiting Ft Jackson on business. I have not looked for him nor talked to anyone that has seen him since that time.

Small World.....I volunteered in 1978 to go to Korea and was lucky to be assigned to 1st Bn 9th Inf. As I was walking across a pedestrian bridge I noticed a 1st Sgt (don't remember his name) from one of the other companies in the Bn coming towards me. He had the 187th Reg Cmbt Team patch on his left shoulder. After he greeted me with a salute and the Bn motto I stopped him and asked him what unit patch that was on his left should. He stated that it was the 187th. I said I just left a place that my boss had that same patch on his left should.....Colonel Anthony Labrozzi. He was ecstatic. He was so happy when I told him that "Tony" was very much alive and kicking. I gave the 1st Sgt his (Tony's) military address and went about my business. He later told me he had in fact had contacted Col Labrozzi and promised to visit upon the completion of the his tour in Korea.

proving his service record. He was with the

with the 35th Infantry Regiment (Cacti). At one

The years were between 1950-1953 when my
father served in the Korean War.

I remember three of four of our M24 tanks parked at the rivers edge,facing the town of Chinju.The bridge was already distroyed so were were to cross the Nam river by foot. I was just to the rear of Capt Torman who was standing next to one of the tanks observing across the river.when it started to move hitting a land mine very near to Capt. Torman.I saw the blast and a lot of flame, then saw Torman on the ground burnt black and in a lot of pain. I then
remember crossing the Nam river on foot with water chest deep. reached the North bank with others and saw a very old man with a toy wooden rifle with his hands up. No other action at this time.I also remember how helpless I felt while in the middle of that river.
sept.27,1950
Capt.Charles Matthews took over the task force
of our recon.c. alone with the 79th tank battalion. Near the small town of Komdu Northwest of Kuyre, we entered a school yard and
